Residential Water & Plumbing Equipment

Drain Replacement/Service

Brands we use:

Higher grade piping, above Code requirements, for lasting performance.

Why we use them:

As well-trained plumbers, we have better tools, can find the problem fast, and can clean drains from the most logical point. By using flexible power augers, we can often get a 3 hour job down to 30 minutes.

Maintenance requirements:

As needed.

Faucets

Brands we use:

Moen, Delta, Crane, TOTO, Emco, Kohler and Grohe.

Why we use them:

We favour higher quality products for installation; however, we can repair many brands. Our policy is to try to fix faucets first, not just try to sell you a new product. With an emphasis on quality, we stock Grohe products in our vans, and only use OEM brands (i.e. no imitations). All products are CSA/above Code.

Maintenance requirements:

Warranty – 1 year parts/labour. Products carry various warranties which we honor in-house.

Piping

Brands we use:

Certified piping, typically PEX or copper.

Why we use them:

Larger homes should consider copper because of its greater inside diameter. This ensures higher water pressure/flow rates over longer pipe distances.

Maintenance requirements:

As needed.

Showers

Brands we use:

Grohe and Moen

Why we use them:

We use Grohe (high end) and Moen (mid-range) shower heads because they are quality products that are fully supported by the manufacturer.

Products are flow rated to 2.5 GPM flow for water efficiency. Our fixtures offer many pulsating and water saving features.

Maintenance requirements:

We include 1 year parts/labour guarantee.

Toilets

Brands we use:

Why we use them:

5-year warranty on the porcelain. They save water and work well - no double flushing required!

Washlets give you the comfort of seat heat, warm bidet, deodorizing, and even warm air drying all within one toilet fixture! The Washlet seats are removable should you choose to sell your home and want to take it with you.

Maintenance requirements:

As needed.

Water Heaters

Brands we use:

Bradford White Domestic 40, 50, 60, 70, 100 gal

Why we use them:

Beyond Instant Plumbing’s’ 1-year full warranty, Bradford offers a 6 to 8-year manufacturer’s warranty, depending on the model.

Maintenance requirements:

Every 3 years the anode rod of a water heater should be checked and possibly replaced. (About 1 hour’s service time, plus parts.)
